News bites: October 8, 2016


Three Meals a Day

  • The poster and stills for Three Meals a Day: Fishing Village 3 are out, and I’m really getting pumped for the new season. We’ll get to see how mat-hyung Lee Seo-jin gets along with new castmates Eric and Yoon Kyun-sang, and one photo hints at a new level of hilarity — youngest dongsaeng Yoon stands above Seo-jinnie providing shade, while Eric laughs in the background. When the picture was snapped, Seo-jinnie fussed, “Hey! Don’t do stuff like this! I’ll get more anti-fans!” to which Yoon replied, “But I’m doing it because I want to.” Eric is evidently a talented cook and fisherman, while Yoon’s described as the “pro” maknae who knows how to brownnose his elders. The new season of Three Meals a Day: Fishing Village begins October 14 on tvN. [TV Report, DongA]

  • Three Meals a Day

  • There’s a lot of press about the billions of won being spent on JTBC’s upcoming Man to Man, which stars Park Hae-jin as a bodyguard protecting a Hallyu star played by Park Sung-woong. The cast recently got together for their first table read, and they’ll fly to Hungary to film on location in early November. The deep pockets mean that there is a helicopter explosion and other large-scale effects in store, but we’ll have to wait until early 2017 to watch the big budget antics on the small screen. [Star News]
  • Wang Ji-hye (Yes, That’s How It Is) will lead a new daily drama called Love Is Drop by Drop. She’s been cast as Eun Bang-wool (a punny reference to the title, as Bang-wool means drop), a high school graduate who worked part-time jobs as a fish and vegetable wholesaler before working her way up into a food company. She’s saucy but has a bright personality and a heart of gold, and having grown up around fish, vegetables and flowers, she has an expert palate. Wang’s character will fall for the man who received a heart transplant from her love (I can hear the collective groan already). Love Is Drop by Drop will be written by Kim Young-in (Run Jang-mi) and will premiere at the end of November on SBS. [Xports News]

  • Wang Ji-hye, Heo Jung-eun, Choi Yoon-so

  • This rising child star has landed a plum role: Heo Jung-eun (the little princess in Moonlight Drawn By Clouds) has been confirmed for the upcoming drama My Fair Lady. She’ll star as an 8-year-old battling childhood dementia in a poignant story about a father caring for his child. The Wednesday-Thursday show will follow On the Way to the Airport on KBS. [Xports News]
  • Choi Yoon-so (Happy Home, Twenty Again) will play a kind, lovable, witty, and sensible woman in close contact with Kim Hee-sun‘s character in Woman of Dignity. The comedy/satire also stars Kim Sun-ah, Lee Ki-woo, Jung Sang-hoon and others and will be 100 percent pre-produced with an expected airdate in 2017. [Dong A]

  • Moonlight Drawn By Clouds

  • There’s a rumored reward vacation to Phuket, Thailand and Cebu, Philippines in the works for the cast and crew of Moonlight Drawn By Clouds, but KBS could not confirm that it will happen; only that one is being discussed. The show has consistently averaged 20% ratings since mid-September, and has held the top spot for Monday-Tuesday dramas since its second week of airing. When shows finish on a high note, the lead actors are often not able to attend cast trips due to scheduled commitments, but Park Bo-gum’s agency declared, “If a reward vacation is confirmed, because of the actors and staff who weathered through the production together, we expect Park Bo-gum will definitely be in attendance.” While it isn’t a tvN show and the chances are virtually nil, I yearn for Na PD to show up and kidnap the beautiful cast for a new reality show. [Sports Chosun]
  • With Saimdang, Light’s Diary being pushed back to January, it seems like we’re in for a long, sparse path of crumbs leading up to its premiere. The second batch of character posters have been released, and in the light-filled images, Lee Young-ae holds a slightly mysterious gaze, while Song Seung-heon appears stern. Saimdang, Light’s Diary will follow Legend of the Blue Sea on SBS in January. [Newsen]

I had to look up the word brown-nose because it's not a word I'm familiar with. Now that I know the meaning (and saw the trailer for 3MAD), looks like I'm going to be rooting for the new adorable magnae. heh.

Oh yes for the new siblings of three meals. I saw the teaser. Such a good looking casts. Lee Seo Jin so cool for driving the boat. Eric, the original hot oppa, could increase ladies's apetite and libido with his sexyness while cooking and fishing and the adorable maknae with his lost expression. Plus two cuties cat?Can't wait!!!

That is too funny especially as a montage! LOL

If you really want to know if he has improved in his acting over the years, here is a movie of his from 1999 called Calla and also stars Kim Hee Sun and Kim Hyun Joo. Then watch something more recent to compare.

When his poster's expression was described as stern, I was like, stern is the only expression he can do. That and 'huh' face, that slightly puzzled expression.... even when having sex.

Omg yes. That's why I thought too. And she would be so good, given what she could do in MDBC without speaking.

Suggestion for Man to Man helicopter scene: Park Sung-woong wears a scarf which gets pulled away by the wind. Then Park Hae-jin exits the helicopter, picks up said scarf, hands it back to PSW and says, "Are you married? No? That's good."

He's the top star. The show is partially based on his life. (Like how Weightlifting Fairy is partially based on Jang Mi-ran's life.)

Park Sung-woong plays Top Star Song Jae-rim, who hired an ex-black-ops guy to guard him against a certain crazy fangirl...

If they come to the cast and crew of Moonlight Drawn by the Clouds vacation in Cebu. I'll hang around the airport...

I'd resist the urge to stalk them... they need the vacation and deserve their privacy but I'd be soooooo psyched if I even just get a glimpse of Park Bo Gum and Kim Yoo Jung.

So fellow beanies... let me know if you get any info on where and when they might be going on vacation.

My brain stopped working after reading "Cebu, Philippines" as a possible vacation spot for the MDBC cast and crew!!! But darn! Living in Manila really sucks when your fave actor/actress visit your country but it's not to the place you're currently residing at... (this news both made and broke my day!)

If anyone lives in Cebu, beep me up so we can form a group together and meet them at the airport. I'm a super great fan of Park Bo Gum and would do anything just to see or meet him here. Btw, I live in Cebu. I really really REALLY HOPE they will come here. [NUMBER HIDDEN]. Search me on facebook: Roxanne Empenida.
